A touching gesture by a man to help an elderly couple, who were flying for the first time, is winning hearts online.
The story was shared by Amitabh Shah on Linkedin. Shah was on board the flight to Kanpur when he saw the elderly couple on board.
“I saw them in the boarding area completely clueless and I realized that it was their first time and they did not understand English. I approached them with a smile and asked them to just follow me. They thought he worked for the airline,” she wrote.
The couple was sitting across from Shah on the flight. The elders asked Shah to click on a photo of them and send it to his daughter to let her know they were safe.
“The aunt asked me: ‘Can you take a picture of us and send it to our daughter, who has a phone with WhatsApp, so she knows we are safe?’ I took this photo and sent it,” Shah said.
“When the stewardess came to serve the food, they refused, but they clearly seemed hungry and thirsty for hours. I told the stewardess to give them paneer sandwiches and juices and to tell them it was courtesy as they were lucky customers to win a free meal. Of course, I paid for it when they weren’t watching it. They just ‘smiled’ at me as we landed and went our own way,” Shah said.
“We should always be kind at every opportunity we get. Trust me, the opportunities to be kind are all around you, right?
